Author: Silvia Ribas


  • 3 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 tsp saf-instant yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup water + 1/4 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp olive oil + 1 tbsp for brushing
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar OR honey


  • Fill a measuring cup with 1/4 cup of warm water and add yeast. Cover with a plastic wrap and let stand for 3-5 minutes.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour and salt and mix briefly.
  • Add the yeast, water, oil + honey and mix with a wooden spoon to combine.
  • Hand knead the dough on a floured surface for about 8-10 minutes.


This dough can be used immediately but for best results shape the dough into a smooth ball, place it on a floured surface and cover with a damp cloth. Let rise at room temperature for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk
